Any updates on when the Butchers Organic is reopening?

I keep hearing that they are delaying the re-opening again and again. Anyone have an update?

    1. Their Twitter feed is the best spot for info at this moment. September 24th is the latest day they said but I doubt it will re-open any time soon personally.!/butchersorganic

      1. They've posted photos of "their" renovation, including one with Marlon holding up a newspaper to prove the date in an old-timey hostage way. I liked that one.

          how very odd to specifically include that picture...

          1. re: justpete

            Why odd? if people were saying I ran away to another country and was living the "high life" and I had not, then I would post something to prove that they were wrong... wouldn't you?

              I think just the situation of an owner having to hold up a newspaper to prove he is still operating is odd, of course. Who wouldn't find that situation odd?!

              Do I get why it's being done? Sure. Does it make it any less odd? No.

                Also I passed by last week and The Butchers sign was gone. Replaced by one reading "Marlon's Meats" I believe.

                  He did the picture because there was a rumour that he left the country and was living it up in India and NOT renovating his store. He wanted to show that those rumours were false.

                  1. re: RogerDoger

                    Like I said, I totally get why he did it. It makes rational sense, I agree with you there.

                    Still, how many times on one hand can you count the times a local business owner has had to hold up a newspaper to prove he hasn't skipped to India?!

                    This is what is odd. The situation. And kind of funny.
